The Universal Triumvirate Department of Warfare was a department lead by the Military Representative of the Executive Branch. They, along with the Department of Intelligence would work on the defense of the Triumvirate. Only very rarely did the Department see any serious issue because the Triumvirate had historically been very pacifist and always favored diplomatic solutions (hence the much larger Department of State). Because the Department of Intelligence performed most of the security work for the Triumvirate it is the pieces of defense that weren't covered by the Department of Intelligence that fell to to the Department of Warfare.
The purpose of the Department of Warfare was to defend the Triumvirate from physical threats (those not covered by the Department of Intelligence, formulate military strategies, and to cover the political side and management of conflict with others.
Ever since the Triumvirate was founded by Zerouh, he vouched strongly for peace. Zerouh always stuck by the notion that war was the last thing the Triumvirate should ever get into and that the Triumvirate should put every effort into every possible solution to the conflict before getting into attacks against others. His feelings on this were very strong and we would insist that the Triumvirate follow this belief closely. "The terrible fact of war is that the ones fighting it are often innocent” was a notable quote by Zerouh on this subject.
